Steel Buildings for Theaters and Museums

Steel Buildings Create Unobstructed Space for Audiences

All buildings for theaters and museums have one common requisite: spaciousness.  Pre-engineered steel buildings provide the column-free openness performances demand.

Clear Span Steel Buildings

However, it is equally important to keep the customers comfortable with an unhindered view of the presentation.  Wide spaces and high ceilings set the tone for audiences to enjoy the show.  No one wants to be stuck behind a roof-supporting column.

Only the strength of steel furnishes the voluminous space needed for buildings for theaters and other projects like these:

  • Banquet halls
  • Church sanctuaries
  • Community theaters
  • Cultural centers
  • Exhibition centers
  • Movie cinemas
  • Museum displays or presentations
  • Park or community outdoor theaters or band shells
  • Performing arts theaters
  • School or community auditoriums

Cavernous Space Calls for Steel

So how far can a pre-engineered metal building span without support columns?

On a standard design, RHINO steel buildings span up to 150 feet in width.  With additional custom engineering, our structures may reach 300 feet in width— the entire length of a football field!
